APS Scanning Service
Professional APS Scanning Service
APS Scanning MethodIn the past we have used the Nikon 5000 to scan our APS film using the Nikon APS adapters. Unfortunately the APS adapters were not compatible with Kodak film which caused damage to the equipment and risked damage to customers film. Because we could never risk the safety of customers film, we have changed our APS scanning service methods. We now take the film out of the canister, cut the film into strips of 4 and scan it on the Nikon 5000 scanners. Once we have finished scanning, all film strips will be placed into negative sheet holders to keep it protected.
Standard EditingAll of our APS Film images will be digitally edited after they are scanned. They will receive automated color balance, fade correction and image rotation. Examples
Premium EditingIf you feel that your scanned images will need more time & attention, we offer our premium digital color correction which means we do what we can to make your image look as good as possible. Examples
View & Organize Online
There really is no way that you can organize your APS film before it has been scanned. With our online system, you can view your APS film and easily organize your digital images.
Just select the online image organization on your order form.
Scanning Resolution is one of the most important factors in determining the quality of your digital image. Scanning Resolution is similar to the concept of megapixels on a digital camera.
The higher your scanning resolution, the higher your quality.

Things to Know
APS Frame RestrictionsWe are not able to skip frames in an APS canister; we must scan all the frames. We bill based off frames, not by the canister. So if you have a 15 exposure canister, you will be billed for 15 scans.
Black and White FilmDigital Ice Infrared Clean does not work on Black and White Film. We can still scan Black and White film, but dust, scratches and fingerprints may show up in the scan.

Advanced Photo System (APS) Film Facts
Advanced Photo System (APS) is a film format for still photography first produced in 1996. It was marketed by Eastman Kodak under the brand name Advantix, by FujiFilm under the name Nexia, by AgfaPhoto under the name Futura and by Konica as Centuria. APS Film is available in 40, 25 and 15 exposure lengths. The APS film surface has a transparent magnetic coating, and the camera uses this information exchange (IX) system for recording information about each exposure. Unlike 135 film, processed (developed) APS film is stored in the original cartridge. For identification, every roll of APS film has a six-digit ID code on the label, which is also stored magnetically and is visible on either end of the processed film.
